We love Taj Restaurant! The food is delicious and always consistent. It is the best tandoori chicken I've ever had, but the rest of the food is really good too. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Khans Taj is a legend among exp-pats & locals alike, and for a good reason.
Inexpensive food, well cooked, produced by cheerful & friendly staff.
Easy to find opposite the Shell station in Lutong "village".
Go visit, you will not be disappointed.

Visiting our daughter in Miri, had lunch at Taj several times on her recommendation. Absolutely delicious Chicken Masala, Roti, Tandoori, and lots of other dishes, we enjoyed every visit. Wonderful service, despite our lack of communication skills! Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Food is fantastic, as a veggie it can be tricky to eat in Miri as things you'd never expect have meat in them, but here vegetarian is understood and catered well for, they even checked with us when we ordered something we might not have realised had egg in it to ensure that was OK with us. A good range of lentil, chickpea, vegetable, paneer and potato dishes as well as your typical meat offerings.
All the roti and naan are cooked fresh to order in front of you - veryskilful! Cutlery all comes in boiling water so you know it's clean and I've never had any tummy issues in 6 months of eating here on average twice a week. The setup looks fairly basic but fans keep it cool enough and hey, plastic chairs are easy to keep clean and survive the humid climate well.
The staff are fantastic and patiently interpret my garbled efforts at Malay (they speak English but I insist on trying Malay, much to their amusement) we feel welcome every time we visit.
My parents ate here several times whilst they visited us from the UK and absolutely loved it, they seemed particularly keen on the Chicken Masala and Tandori chicken, good quality meat and not as sticky and cloying sauce as you tend to get in the UK. They were also looked after fantastically by the staff.
I've delayed writing a review because selfishly I still want to be able to get here, have a fab lunch for 3GBP pp and be back at work in less than an hour but it's really only fair to recognise them for such good food and service :-)
Just for info I think they are closed Mondays.

Khan's is a well hidden gem used by many of the workers (both local and expat) around the lutong area for lunch. We go there at least once a week for a range of fantastic North Indian cuisine. The spinach paneer is fantastic. Would definitely recommend popping in for lunch if you've got time.
